Think spectacular technology

Best Amazon Cyber Monday deals still available: $18 Fire TV Stick Lite, $30 Roku Streaming Stick Plus, $100 Amazfit watch, more

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Cyber Monday is finished, but mega-retailer Amazon hasn’t shut its deal doors yet, so to speak. There are many products still on sale, from Amazon’s own warehouse of smart devices to Bose and Sony headphones, DNA kits, Tile Bluetooth trackers and more. We’ve compiled our favorites below. 

One important note: Delivery dates are starting to slip to late December, and even January, on some products. Those may readjust as Amazon updates inventory, but be aware if you’re ordering anything that’s a must-have holiday gift.

Before you dive in, be sure to read these pro tips for saving extra cash:

Pro tip No. 1: Virtually everything you buy from Amazon qualifies for 5{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} cash back when you pay with an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card. But Amazon has raised that as high as 25{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} for some items. That makes this a good time to sign up for that card if you don’t already have one.

Pro tip No. 2: Cash-back service TopCashback is currently offering up to 8{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} back on select Amazon purchases (mostly Amazon devices). That would be in addition to the 5{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} to 10{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} back if you used Amazon’s Visa. Buy an Echo Show 8 for $65, for example, and you’d get 8{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} back here and 5{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} from the card. Real savings!

Finally, don’t forget: Amazon isn’t the only game in cybertown. Check out the best Cyber Monday deals still available at Walmart and, for serious bargain-shoppers, the best Cyber Monday deals under $50

The best Amazon Cyber Monday deals

David Carnoy/CNET

Usually priced at $200, the Cyber Monday $150 price tag matches the lowest price ever for these fitness-oriented true wireless earbuds. They include active noise canceling and a 24-hour runtime. In his CNET review, David Carnoy called them “top notch.” Read our Jabra Elite Active 75t review.


This ties the lowest price on record for Amazfit’s Apple Watch look-alike, which offers a lot of the same features and way better battery life (up to 14 days, according to Amazfit). It offers a vibrant 1.6-inch display (with an always-on option), built-in GPS and loads of fitness features. Plus, it works with both Android and iOS phones.


The latest version of the excellent WH1000X headphones, these headphones include noise canceling with Sony’s Dual Noise Sensor, a 30-hour battery life and touch sensors on the earcups for media control and voice assistance. 


Do you own a Nintendo Switch or an older game console like the original Xbox or a PlayStation 3? There’s a piece of hardware you might want to consider adding: the Marseille mClassic. It’s a plug-in dongle that promises to upgrade game graphics in various ways, not the least of which is upscaling Switch games to 1440p resolution.

And it works pretty well, at least with certain games. This might make a great gift for the gamer in your life. Use the on-page $10-off coupon to get it for $89. (Note: This was 15{8c54160eed80eb00ac4f5d74c8785e95142d89daf570f201b81dc7fdc31059f3} off previously.)


This combo would ordinarily cost $75, but it’s on sale for $34. You get the all-new Echo Dot along with an Amazon Smart Plug, which you can use to control lights or appliances using Alexa. 

This isn’t the only fourth-gen Echo Dot bundle, either. For example, if you’re more a fan of TP-Link smart plugs, you can get the Echo Dot with TP-Link Smart Plug for $47, saving $26. Read our Amazon Echo Dot (2020) review.


Want to step up from your smartphone for better photos? The Canon PowerShot Digital Camera G7 X Mark II has a large 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor for significantly better image quality. You can capture up to eight frames per second and preview your images on the fully articulating 3-inch LCD display. 


This is the largest discount on record for this new Roomba, which not only navigates your floors with smart sensors but also empties its own dust bin. (I’m pretty sure this is how Terminators got started.)

This jumbo-size Echo Show smart display measures, as the name implies, 8 inches diagonally, which makes it a great choice for watching cooking videos in the kitchen or making video calls. This sale price ties the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this model. Read our Echo Show 8 review.

Note that Amazon currently shows 3-6 months (!) for delivery, but you can still order at this price — and chances are good more inventory will arrive sooner than that.

Normally $30, the new-for-2020 Fire Stick Lite continues to see a solid discount ahead of Black Friday. This entry-level streamer delivers 1080p video with HDR support (but not 4K). The big missing apps are HBO Max and Peacock (for now), but the Alexa-powered voice remote is top-notch.

“Wait for a sale.” That was the conclusion of CNET’s Echo Dot 2020 review, which praised the design and sound quality of the new model but rightly noted that Amazon’s mini smart speakers go on sale all the time. This, however, is actually the first time it’s happening; during Prime Day, Amazon discounted only the previous-gen Dot. 

Note that you can buy the Echo Dot with Clock for $39, also discounted for the first time, also $21 off. And the fourth-gen Echo Dot Kids Edition is $49 (you save $41).

Another Prime Day rerun, the Fire HD 10 tablet is an absolute steal at this price. Among the highlights: a big, sharp screen, expandable storage, a USB-C connector and a speed boost over the previous-gen model. It may be awhile before we see the Fire HD 10 get discounted this much again.

Read our Fire HD 10 review.


This is the lowest price on record for LG’s 2019 thin-and-light Gram, which nails just about every important spec. In addition to its eighth-gen Core i7 processor, it features 16GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive, a full-HD touchscreen and a battery good for a whopping 20 hours, according to LG.

Take note, however, that the integrated Intel graphics subsystem may not have the horsepower needed for high-end gaming, though it does have 8GB of dedicated RAM.
